What People are Saying
ABOUT RICHMOND REGION SPORTS
"We have worked with Tourism Departments all over the country on large scale athletic events and can honestly say that working with the Richmond Region Tourism team has been incredible. They have been accommodating at every turn and have helped make our events in Richmond very successful. Great event venues and great attractions keep all of our participants and fans excited about visiting Richmond every year."
Lee Corrigan - President, Corrigan Sports Enterprises
Triple Crown Sports chose the Richmond Region because of several key factors. One of those factors was because of the close proximity to a very large segment of the US population as well as the number of colleges and universities that are within an 8 hour drive. Additionally, Richmond Region Tourism has a strong team that was capable of bringing several different entities together to collaborate with Triple Crown Sports in producing a premium baseball championship tournament.
John Casale – Baseball Director, Triple Crown Sports
"Tough Mudder is thrilled to be working with Richmond Region Tourism to host our Tough Mudder Virginia event. We have such a strong partnership with the community of Richmond, so it's been a pleasure to work with RRT to not only build on the success of last year’s event, but also to provide a positive economic impact on the region, as thousands of participants travel near and far to see what’s in store for Tough Mudder Virginia."
Robyn Pigozzi - Operations Manager, Tough Mudder
"From start to finish, we encountered helpful, smiling, experienced personnel in planning and conducting our 2014 and 2016 USA Gymnastics State Championships. The network of knowledge between Richmond Region Tourism, the Greater Richmond Convention Center, hotels and all the various craft services made our event amazingly smooth. The feedback from the participating athletes, coaches, parents and officials was overwhelmingly positive and we hope to bring another State Championship back in the near future".
Jim Roe, Owner - Virginia International Gymnastics Schools, Inc. and VA USA Gymnastics State Administrative Committee Member
"USA Fencing holds 8 National tournaments each year and frequently places competitions in Richmond, VA. Richmond Region Tourism not only understands the sports market but the specific needs of our organization and the athletes that attend our competitions. In some cities, once the contracts are signed, the CVB or Sports Commission is done with our event. In Richmond, signing the contracts is just the beginning of the process as they are by our side prior to, during and following the tournament. They assist with logistics, marketing, press and bring their expertise to the table to ensure our tournaments are successful. USA Fencing is pleased to say that we have been a long time partner with Richmond Region Tourism and look forward to continuing this partnership going forward."
Christine Strong Simmons - Director of Operations, USA Fencing
